Better Explanations for Colorado’s Recent ‘Fireball’ in the Sky
You may have heard that there was a little bit of commotion in the skies above Colorado, recently. If you happened to have seen it, and according to reports at least one person in Montrose did, what appeared to be a giant, "fireball" was spotted in the sky in late April. Nobody was reported to have been hurt, but the experience, for those who caught it, was understandably shocking.
Now, most experts seem to be in agreement that what was seen was nothing more than some kind of "space junk" burning up in the atmosphere. Short version: no cause for alarm, this kind of stuff happens all the time. However, I don't particularly care for that explanation, so I've come up with a few better ones for you to ponder.
I'm not one who believes in most supernatural concepts. You might be aware of this already if you've heard my previous thoughts on the 'Zombie Apocalypse'. That being said, since I'm making these things up anyway, why couldn't this have been the result of some kind of space fight? Presuming that 'aliens' were so technologically advanced that they could master space travel in the first place, you don't think they could have figured out how to keep our tech from detecting them? I'm just saying, that fireball could've been someone finally shooting Jar-Jar Binks out of the sky, and we should all be allowed to commend them for it.
The concept of the 'multiverse' is a hot topic these days, even as it dies a slow death at the box office. Having watched the CW show The Flash for many years, and seeing as how I'm a nerd of the highest order, I've been familiar with this nonsense for a long time. That light in the sky could have been Grant Gustin returning from a completely different Earth. The only problem with that theory is that no one seems to have been there to catch him, which suddenly makes this entry kind of dark. Moving on...
Super Suit Test Flight
Speaking of superheroes, the fireball could have also been the remnants of a failed super suit test flight. I mean, people have already referred to Elon Musk as the 'real-life Tony Stark', haven't they? While I do think this comparison gives the former-richest man on the planet a default level of intelligence that he clearly does not deserve, he is still the second-richest person on the planet. Considering his previous pet projects and need for attention, actually becoming Iron Man in real life sounds like the exact type of thing Elon might be up to when he isn't playing with his Twitter.
